Well, there is the one rule that, if a man harms a woman and causes her to miscarry, he has to pay the husband a reasonable fine. Granted, if the woman were pregnant outside of marriage, they'd stone her, killing her and the fetus. So there's that. Takes abortion from "murder" to "vandalism."
<quoted text>
Well that verse deals with an accidental miscarriage, and not abortion, but you are correct. It is a property loss as opposed to "murder" of a "sacred life". Yes and stoning a pregnant woman to death just goes to prove that a fetus could not be "murdered", per the bible. No life, no murder.

Bible is full of warnings about misusing the word of god, the bible, for their own purposes. Of course these myth believers pick and choose what they follow and make up the parts they wish were there because deep down, they also know it isn't real.

Intersting information about trolls like our little RC/MsHoney, who is all of the other pop up trolls on this thread:
"Different sources define an internet troll as a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.Researchers have begun studying this new phenomenon and believe that internet trolls actually suffer from a multitude of mental disorders. Some psychiatrists describe internet trolls as sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously, and constantly jealous of those they see as strong and successful. They typically possess a poorly developed set of social skills and have difficulty viewing their actions from the perspectives of their victims. The chemical imbalances in their brains make them callous to the fact that they are harming real people and mentally cannot think beyond their computer screen. They feel no remorse for the harm they cause, and actually measure their “success” by the amount of harm they have caused those they do not like. The disease makes them impervious to rationale, mature arguments against their wares, and will protest that their right to free speech is being curtailed if ever there is an attempt to call them on their trolling. People with this disorder exhibit desperation in meeting their attention-needs, which are usually unmet in their real life."

Canadian researchers have found that online trolls - those sowers of discord; those who start flame wars by arguing or upsetting people; those who post inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in communities - just want to have fun.
In fact, that's the title of a paper published recently by three researchers from the Universities of Manitoba, Winnipeg and British Columbia.
Unsurprisingly, trolls also reek of what scientists call the Dark Tetrad of noxious personality variables: Machiavellianism (willingness to manipulate and deceive others), narcissism (egotism and self-obsession), psychopathy (the lack of remorse and empathy), and sadism (pleasure in the suffering of others).
The researchers set out to determine whether "everyday sadism" would be the most germane trait to trolling, they said. After all, it's pretty intrinsic to troll culture:
Trolling culture embraces a concept virtually synonymous with sadistic pleasure: in troll-speak,'lulz'.
The researchers conducted two online surveys using Amazon's Mechanical Turk site, restricting participation to US respondents.
The surveys embedded questions about trolling and other online behaviors into a larger battery of personality questionnaires.
Some of the responses to questions that participants chose, along with the tendencies they point to:
I enjoy hurting people.[Direct sadism]
In video games, I like the realistic blood spurts.[Vicarious sadism]
Payback needs to be quick and nasty.[Subclinical psychopath]
It's not wise to tell your secrets.[Machiavellian]
I have been compared to famous people.[Narcissist]
Taken together, the two studies showed that, for one thing, Dark Tetrad traits are extremely highly correlated with people who spend a lot of time commenting online.
And out of those traits - Machiavellianism, Narcissism, psychopathy, direct sadism and vicarious sadism - it was sadism that had the strongest association with trolling.
In fact, the researchers wrote, associations between sadism and respondents' trolling scores were so strong, "it might be said that online trolls are prototypical everyday sadists."
Other online activities, including chatting and debating, were unrelated to sadism.
In fact, the internet is like heaven for sadists. It can be anonymous, and it enables sadists to easily connect with other sadists.
From the paper:
Both trolls and sadists feel sadistic glee at the distress of others. Sadists just want to have fun... and the Internet is their playground!
We're told not to feed the trolls, and that's probably the best approach to take, although some victims have said that starvation doesn't make them shrivel up and go away.

Oh JM, you live in such a fantasy world. Most times when pregnancy happens it is an accident. That makes it a mistake. Didn't you just say that pregnancy does not happen every time there is sex? So give it a rest already.
No children are killed in abortion. Abortion is safer than birth. Women do not suffer. No woman is ever forced to abort. That is just the fantasy you use to justify forcing YOUR will on her. Of course I care enough to help. I will help any woman seeking an abortion to find one. It is her right.
Again, pregnancy is not an accident. Mans sperm fertilizing the womans egg during sex is not accidental is a natural occurance. God wills every existence of his creation. He doesn't make mistakes. The circumstance you get yourself may be a mistake, but make no mistake, nature happens with or without our consent. A human life is created at conception and that's a fact. Our offsprings. Our children. Abortion kills that child deliberately, and that is yet another pesky fact for you to swallow. It's not safe by any means.

Please don't spread such lies Chicky. MANY girls are forced to abort as are grown women. You are clueless about that. Post abortion woman do suffer. The abortion movement is based on lies and all its puppets are decieved, like you.

Hmmm...so you claim to help women seek abortions. Do you help them keep their babies? Yes or no.

So all the excuses you make such as:
<quoted text>
None of these excuses to deny choice makes no difference to you at all. You are anti choice even when a pregnancy is forced on a woman/girl, you are anti choice in every circumstance so why make excuses? You consider women/girls brood mares and NO you heart does not go out to the victimized woman/girl as you would victimize her by not allowing her a choice AGAIN.
Why do you feel a woman/girl can be used by a man through rape in order for him to procreate? You are all for the man using the woman/girl and demanding that she follow through and bare the result of a CRIME committed against her with no recourse.
Again, why do you make excuses for being entirely anti choice when the fact IS you consider women nothing more than sperm receptacles that should reproduce regardless of the circumstances, it makes no difference to you if a woman "lets a man use her" (your words) or if she is brutalized and raped. If she becomes pregnant you demand the same outcome.
Oh THIS ^^^is priceless. I "consider women brood mares" because I want a human to be protected from being killed via abortion?
Get your facts straight here, men don't rape so that he can procreate. Good grief woman. Men rape because its a power trip for them. If a woman does get pregnant, it doesn't change the violence committed against her.. That child IS hers too. That child doesn't deserve death because of how he/she was conceived (ask a child conceived in rape). The woman needs help for sure and she doesn't need to have killing of her child on her soul. Shes suffered enough. A couple desperately wanting a child NEVER cares how that child was conceived.
Do you help women or young girls who want to keep their baby but feel desperate enough to abort? Yes or no? What do you do for them?

What a guy your "god" is and we as women are merely and strictly "his" vessel.....free will be damned.
If a woman practices free will and beats her baby, is that Gods will too? Come on Morgie that's ridiculous. As far a creating a human life, God wills the sperm and egg to create life.Period. We as mere mortal humans don't always understand the mind of God. He clearly allows free will but clearly tells us what free will choices he approves and disapproves of. He wouldn't approve of that mans free will choice to rape. He wants sex to have boundaries(marriage) for a reason.

You have it backwards.
Religious conservative right wing men have issues with women. Religious conservative right wing men consider themselves superior to women and are in deep need of a mommy to care for them. They consider women subservient twits sent by their male god to wait on them hand and foot. They consider control of women an entitlement. AND yes PC women have SERIOUS ISSUES with that type of man/boy.
Abortion is a medical procedure to end an unwanted medical condition. What is insane is the fact that you will say or do anything to gain control over womens reproductive decisions. To bad for you Bucky, you have no say and remain an unknown and unimportant factor in the life and decision making process of pregnant women/girls. Suck it up.
No man that I have ever allowed in my life EVER thought that he was superior to me, demanded I wait on him or tried to control me. LOL where do you come up with this nonsense? I love men. I have many wonderful men in my life. I have self-respect, so I draw respectable men.

A woman who aborts her child or a woman who supports this evil act against their own,has no self respect. Men smell dysfunction a mile away. Theybrun or they come in and do more damage.

I know many who were once *there* and they turned to God for forgiveness and healing after years of depression, frustration, anxiety and dysfunction. God made them whole again and changed their lives :)

Prove there is "no such thing as a soul" and that there is no God. Kthanks.

You have a problem with people who think that you are "inferior and subservient to men" yet you allowed a man to use you for sex(YOUR exact words chicky) who eventually, dumped you and his daughter.

Being natural doesn't mean it's a deliberate action; it's all a matter of probability. Not every act of intercourse results in pregnancy; in fact, the majority do not. And again, your "facts" are opinions. Your god is irrelevant to the conversation. Whether a fetus is a child is a philosophical view, not a fact; for the majority of our history, fetuses were NOT considered to be children.

Defined "forced". Unless someone is threatening the women with injury or death, they aren't forced. They may be persuaded, and they may regret it afterwards, but most women categorically do NOT regret their decisions.

Do you think women are too stupid to make their own decisions without your "guidance"?

Do you realize that, among other horrors, bearing your rapist's child means you are legally involved with him for 18 years? Rapists have sued for visitation and even custody of said children; they usually don't get custody, fortunately. Even if she gets a restraining order against him, do you think he'd obey it?

Most women don't want to bear a child they didn't want and was forced on them by an act of violence. Fortunately, she can avoid it by aborting before it becomes a child at all.

Don't need to prove something DOESN'T exist. All religions are bils down to taking somebody's word something supernatural happened. Kinda like the amityville haunted house.

Right after you prove your fairy god father exists, I'll have to prove he doesn't. Until then, it just aint there. Just like your "morality" and "christianity" and ability to stop women from accessing abortion.

Quick note, can't prove a negative. The onus is on the person making the claim to prove it.

Believing in God is faith. I have faith in God, but I don't preach it because I really wouldn't know where to start. There are so many people on here that don't believe in God, yet they seem to know more about the Bible than a lot of people.

I know one person in my life that knows the Bible inside, and out, and has tried to put things into perspective for me, but I admit, it's hard. It is.

Again, can't prove a negative. I think a lot of people don't believe in God because there's really no "proof". It's faith. I have one bro that believes in God, goes to church etc. etc. etc. and one that doesn't. We don't talk a lot about religion at family dinners.
